Default High torque motor vs. Lower rear gear

I wanted to get some input on getting another motor or changing rear end differential. I have a IQ cart and I've put new batteries, 500 amp Alltrax controller, 400 amp solenoid, plumb quick bandit motor. I have a lift kit with 23" tires. I use this cart for hunting and I go on some steep hills. It does ok but I would like for it to pull a little better than it does already. What do y'all think would be the best route to go?

I would contact plum racing about any possible motor needs.

If it's electronics I would contact scottyb

Might be a crazy question but what size are the wires between all your batteries connection including motor

Not a crazy question. I forgot to mention earlier, I have 2 ga. Wires throughout the whole system. On a flat road I get up to 23 mph which I really don't care that much about speed, but going down a small hill I've gotten it up to 35mph. I just want this cart to pull. My cart is a 2003 pathway cart, I didn't know if it has a higher gearing in it for speed.

I've hooked up my lap top computer to my Alltrax controller and it's putting out 100%. I also have a aggressive curve installed in the controller also. I've road my cart up some small hills and gotten off to check wires to see if anything is getting hot, but everything is cool.

Well, I don't think it matters now. I just fried my PQ motor. I was braking in my new set of batteries. I was about 5 miles into running my batteries down when i smelled it. About the time I smelled it over heating, I heard it sizzle and pop. I had to call my wife to get my Rhino to come pull me home.
After I got it home, I went checking every thing out. All the battery cables and the controller was cool, not hot what so ever. But the motor was hot and smelling! I guess I'll call PQ tomorrow and ask what's be best route to go.
